[The Glory Unveiled]
“Caesar’s,” they replied. Then he said to them, “Give to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and to God what is God’s.” ( Matthew 22:21 )
What would you do if you borrowed someone’s item and the person requested for it later? You’d naturally have to give it back to them—the obvious thing to do right? God gave us life, so we must give our lives back to Him. A life not dedicated to the worship and service of God is spiritual robbery (in the sense that such a life is not returned). Give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar and to God what is His. Our spirit, soul and body belongs to God. It is only appropriate to give back to Him what is His. But how do we give back to God? Its by applying Matthew 22:37, which says “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ *Our love for God is the true expression of our stewardship and giving back of ourselves for His glory*. Love is the selfless giving of self for the service and benefit of another as if one’s needs do not exist. Loving God with all our will, emotions, intellect and memory brings pleasure and glory to God. Give to God what belongs to Him in all circumstances. Let’s not rob God of His property.
Prayer_Bead: Father in Heaven, the source and sustainer of all things, I surrender and yield my spirit, soul and body to you. I love you with my heart, intellect and emotions.
